On behalf of the children and the staff of the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center,
we would like to extend a sincere thank you to Music That Heals for providing
the performance by Richard Younger on August 17, 2016. The show was
interactive and very enjoyable for all the children who participated. As it was
Richardâ€™s first time here, he did well at engaging the children with great ease
and his comfort came through in his performance as he encouraged the
children to participate and sing along. The childrenâ€™s responsiveness and
alertness during this performance was highly increased and this is always a
wonderful goal to achieve.

I hired Richard to play music at my daughter's 5th birthday party after seeing him at a friend's party earlier. He was great! I was impressed with how he was fun and enthusiastic and got the children happily involved in music and dance, but without being overpowering. He has a really nice energy and related well with the kids. His music is also really fun, including for adults. He is professional and working with him was a pleasure.
Thanks again for a great party!

Richard played at my daughter's 4th and 5th birthday parties and all of the children had a wonderful time with him. Richard has a knack for engaging all of the children he plays for and makes all of them feel special. We would have him back again and again.
Richard Younger is a talented musician who possesses a wonderful rapport with children. The two-, three- and four-year-old children and their parents love to sing and dance with him. Richard is a dedicated, reliable and important contributor to the library and the Woodside community.
